Being an empath doesn’t necessarily mean that you are gifted with powers of clairvoyance or telepathy, but for some people, it seems as real as anything. Some might have naturally gifted abilities to sense what others are feeling, even if they are hiding it.
Often times they develop almost super-human like qualities of empathy at an early age. There’s a special place in everyone’s heart for someone who is truly empathic. They have an uncanny ability to surprise you when you need them most.
Natural child empaths have powers of observation and perception that are almost ‘Sherlockian’ in nature. The following 12 traits can be observed in children at a very young age who may be developing their empathic abilities.
1. They have limited to no friendships: Many empathic children, unfortunately, deal with isolation. They sense at an early age when people are disingenuous or fraudulent. They may also be able to sense when people mean them harm.
2. They ‘act out’ when you are feeling angry: Empathic children have difficulty managing their feelings when others around them are feeling negative. They have not yet developed the cognitive ability to keep out negative emotions from others. Instead, they share these feelings with you.
3. They are exceptionally intuitive: Some children remain oblivious when adults are dealing with difficult challenges or life experiences. Empathic children, seem to know the truth about everything without even fully understanding it. Their powers of intuition may foretell when parents are about to divorce, if an elder is fatally ill, or perhaps when a stranger means them harm.
4. They enjoy their alone time: Empaths need a break from the emotions around them. They often retreat to a place of solitude after a chaotic experience in the public. Empathic children may flock to their bedrooms after a long day at school.
